Introduction: Sindhu Ramchandren, M.D., M.S.

Welcome
 to the Ramchandren research site! Here you will find information on our clinical and research interests.


Some personal information: I completed my medical training at the University of Texas-Houston, my Neurology residency at the University of Pennsylvania, a fellowship in Clinical Neurophysiology- EMG at Johns Hopkins University, and a Master of Science in Clinical Research and Statistics at the University of Michigan.  I was previously an Assistant Professor at Wayne State University, where I had the privilege to work with and learn from giants in the field of Neuromuscular Disease- Dr. Mike Shy, Dr. Rich Lewis, and Dr. Bob Lisak.  


I joined the University of Michigan's Neurology Department in April 2013, and I currently direct the University of Michigan’s Adult and Pediatric Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) Clinic, Adult and Pediatric Duchenne Multidisciplinary Clinic, as well as the Adult and Pediatric Inherited Neuropathy (CMT) Clinic.  Our CMT Clinic has been recognized as one of 10 Centers of Excellence in clinical and research care in the United States, by the Charcot-Marie-Tooth Association (CMTA).  Please call our Clinic Coordinator, Kim Creamer, at 734-647-3863 if you wish to schedule an appointment at our clinics.


As a clinician-researcher, the mission of my research is to identify new treatments for neuromuscular disorders, and improving patient-centered outcomes.  I am especially interested in identifying interventions that improve pain, functional status, and the overall quality of life of patients with genetic neuromuscular disorders.
